September 15- November 4, 2017
(SCENE) Metrospace and the MSU Department of Art, Art History, and Design are excited to announce the opening of Quantum Entanglement featuring the work of Robert B. Park of Bath, Michigan. Park received his BFA in 1969 from Michigan State University, after completing his degree he returned in the early 70’s to obtain a teaching certification. Park’s work has been extensively shown regionally and nationally. His work is held in private collections through the United States and abroad. Throughout his career, his work has been the recipient of awards from exhibitions nationwide. This exhibition is the result of decades of making.
During Exhibitions (SCENE) Metrospace maintains the following hours and is free and open to the public with the exception of some special programming:
Our next exhibition at the MSU Union Art Gallery, Grand River, a solo exhibition featuring the work of Jeffery Evergreen. Evergreen recieved his MFA in Print Media from Cranbrook in 2014 and BFA from Michigan State University in 2004 with a concentration in Painting & Sculpture.
The circulation, remediation, and recombination of images is the current focus of Evergreen’s arts practice. He uses a combination of digital and print processes to deconstruct contemporary images and draw attention to the materials and processes used and invite viewers to reconsider their personal relationship with images, technology, and mass media. But rather than offering some ideologically over-simplified answer, he prefers that larger questions about meaning and cultural value persist, coming to the fore to initiate conversations in which a more broad and balanced understanding may be achieved.

JEWISH STUDIES FACULTY/STUDENT RESEARCH SEMINAR
MAIMONIDES’ DISCUSSION OF PROPHECY IN THE GUIDE TO THE PERPLEXED
Wells Hall B-342
Jewish Studies affiliate Dr. Benjamin Lorch will present on Maimonides’ political philosophy, which he argues is present in the part of the Guide of the Perplexed devoted to the subject of prophecy. “The central subject of this discussion is the divine law: why is the law revealed by the prophets superior to merely human legislation, and what is a good law? [Dr. Lorch] ascertains Maimonides’s answers to these questions by examining his presentation of the conflict between Judaism and philosophy concerning the truth of prophecy and the authority of the law: the prophetic teaching par excellence is the guidance that man cannot discover by means of reason and that he would not possess at all had God not revealed this guidance to His prophets. [He argues] that Maimonides identifies the special content of prophecy as the moral laws, the laws that Judaism designates ‘commandments between man and his fellow man.’” Co-sponsored by James Madison College, the Department of Religious Studies, and the College of Arts and Letters.
